Today I am trying to get back to work at everything after a low key, family focused, Christmas vacation. It’s been a great break, but it feels good to get back at it.

I’m really concentrating on getting the score finished for RED LIPS, THE MUSICAL, which goes up in Calgary in June. (Produced by Liquid Meld Theatre at the Vertigo Space). It’s a bit behind – to be honest it’s a lot behind –  but I’m confident I’ll have the piano/vocal done within about 10 days or so. Jeff Smook is working on the bass and drum parts and he is making progress as well.

Once RED LIPS is done I will be back at SAINT AGGIE’S ’84, writing a couple of new songs and scenes for the two act version of the show. Still trying to find somewhere to workshop the new version in around April. (Any suggestions are appreciated).

The Captain Tractor record is now in the design stage and some shows are being booked for March. The actual release of the record will be in May or June and there will be some more live dates at that time. Hopefully we’ll being playing festivals all over the place this summer.
